In Ditmas Park West, this circa 1917 standalone wood-frame house looks extremely spacious and has a garage and driveway, not to mention a porch and original details. It also looks to be in very good condition, at least in the photos.
The house at 484 Rugby Road preserves lots of original details, including stained glass, a built-in bench in the foyer, parquet floors, pocket doors, and a coffered ceiling in the dining room. The latter is painted white, as is the rest of the trim; some prospective buyers may want to strip it to the original wood.
It’s configured with a double parlor plus dining room and kitchen on the first floor. Upstairs are seven bedrooms over two floors. The house has 2.5 bathrooms, numerous closets and, in the cellar, laundry and wine storage.
The light-pink exterior has gables with dentil trim, bay windows, and a front porch that looks to have recently been decked. A circa-1917 garage with two sets of car doors, a lawn and patio make up the backyard. Cars use the driveway for parking.
It’s a legal one-family, according to PropertyShark, but it’s set up as a two-family. An upper duplex contains a second kitchen, which could could complicate financing if it stays. The pictures do not show any kitchens or baths.
Listed by Laura Rozos of Compass, it’s asking $1.795 million. With 3,424 square feet of space, according to PropertyShark, that comes to $524 per square foot. Worth taking a look?
